ANNOUNCEMENT Elite Dangerous: Odyssey Announcement

It's probably a very bad estimate I agree! But that's the point of estimate's, to give people some degree of false hope that the result will actually be somewhere near that point, even if there is actually no chance. Anyone who has ever asked for a building estimate understands that, the estimate is to get you committed and spending money, it's only after it's to late to back out that the actual cost is revealed.
 
I mean alot of people believe it will probably between mid to late Jan though I would personally do a wider net so im guessing mid Jan to mid feb maybe?

In IT job offers, I often laugh when reading in the ad: " Search person able to estimate the precise duration of a project". :ROFLMAO:

Expand the frontier, does that mean base building will be added? expand the frontier? what else could that mean?
Well so far our base of operation has been our ship. Player owned carriers now exist, maybe a ground base is now a future possibility ?

Could just read it as being able to walk about is the new way to expand the frontier ?

If the statement had said 'Expand the frontier of unknown space' I would have fallen off my chair though !

I wouldn't read that much in this quote. I wouldn't hope for any persistent player base anytime soon. But I'd love to be proven wrong! :)
Though I'd be delighted with just some kind of foldable space tent to one could trek on the surface for an extended period.

I expect "expand the frontier" simply means that are adding more planets to explore, there's nothing at all in it to imply base building, at least that's my take!
 
There are a lot of locked star systems on the map.
These have always bugged me. Have any of these locked systems been unlocked since launch? Sure some may be locked for narrative reasons, but it could also be just some identified Stellar Forge buggy edge cases that FDEV blocks so they don't mess up or break the game.
 
Many, possibly.... but idiot questions or comments are everyday here, so assume no-one knows anything, not even what day it is, and a close approximation of the collective cognitive abilities of a minority of the forum membership is approached.
